Christopher McNulty's Vanitas
In a wall text, it explained that these works are an ongoing visual investigation of the probable number of days that he has left to live. This number was derived from a visit to an actuary, and it serves as the foundation from which McNulty inhabits an artistic space somewhere between probability and, to use his term, vanitas.
